Monopoly Coloring Workbook

Here's the lesson plan saved as a Google Document.

Interactive Unemployment Graph From NYT

This is brilliant.

Check out the unemployment rate for non college grads versus college grads.  When someone graduates from college, the college degree says something about the person.  I call this something a productive characteristic.  This characteristic shows that you can play the game or start what you finish.  It's not the degree, but what the degree says about you.

Coloring Workbook for Microeconomics


Here's just what you wanted for those long, boring holidays.  This is a section from my econ coloring workbook.  This section is on perfect competition.

Here's the link to the Google Documents.

Many school districts are not buying textbooks for their classes.  These problems are universal so that they can be used with any textbook or online source. I recommend Amosweb.com as an excellent source of instruction.  This link begins the perfect competition material.  For those wanting  rigorous instruction, I recommend J. Anthony Cookson's videos on YouTube.  Working through Mr. Cookson's textbook has been a joy this break.

Sign of the Times


I wonder if children today just want to email or text Santa with their wish list.  What do the children wish for? iPads, phones, and technology.

Let's hope that this holiday season brings peace and joy.
